I think that it is one of the top trees I collect! The leaves are shiny and cut-leaf. The fall color is a combination of reds and oranges and purple!!! Never have to water it and it doesn't seem to require any special attention. I just ordered the weeping form and the columar form of Parotia. Can't wait to plant them, John Willis
